Community Expands its Leadership Team

This is some text inside of a div block.

Today, Community is thrilled to expand its leadership team to include Todd Fellerman as the company’s first Chief Revenue Officer, Sarah Agudo as Chief Legal and Privacy Officer, and Evan Young as Chief of Staff. The new executive hires follow a recent round of investment from Salesforce Ventures and incredible momentum for the overall brand.

Fellerman joins Community from Tripadvisor, where he served as a Global Vice President leading its global sales, service, and advertising operations teams under the B2B division. With his previous leadership experience at Amazon and Google, Fellerman draws on his knowledge to further optimize the customer experience and deepen partner relationships as the business scales and reaches new brands.

In his new position, Todd will oversee partnerships, sales, distribution and vertical growth with SMBs, global brands and enterprise companies. He will also be responsible for helping to scale new Leaders, with focus on public figures. Fellerman will work with the current team to ensure that people, brands, and marketers can leverage Community’s innovative technology to engage with their respective audiences without social algorithm interference, ads or spam getting in the way.    

Sarah brings over 15 years experience of exceptional legal and corporate counsel, most recently at Quibi and previously at Snap Inc., Medium, and Yelp Inc., to help oversee Community’s legal and policy services and resources in line with the business’s strategies and priorities.

Evan joins Community with a background in consulting and business, most recently as Chief of Staff at ServiceTitan. He will work to support Community’s strategic business and company objectives.  

These new hires mark a moment of continuous growth for Community. In just a year, Community's team has expanded over 100%. Additionally Members have grown to over 26MM and over 3B texts have been sent since Community launched in 2019. We are excited to continue building a world-class brand, product, and innovative conversational marketing experience for our Leaders, Members and the internal team here, and cannot wait for what’s ahead.
